Crom Saunders

Crom Saunders was born Deaf, and immediately started letting the world know there was nothing wrong with that. After getting a M.A. in Creative Writing, Crom began teaching ASL and Deaf Culture at several universities before getting tenure at Columbia College Chicago, where he is currently Director of Deaf Studies. Crom also works as a theatre interpreter and ASL master for several notable theater companies, including Steppenwolf Theatre and the Oregon Shakespeare Festival. With what free time Crom has left in between his teaching and theatre work, he also presents workshops and performs internationally. Crom also enjoys horror movies and books, which is why he never gets any sleep. Despite all of this, Crom has not yet caught up with the fame and respect that his eyebrows have. But, Crom wants to let the world know there is nothing wrong with that.
